Lucy Maulsby is an Associate Professor of Architectural History at the School of Architecture at Northeastern University in Boston, MA. She received her B.A. in Art History from Smith College and her M.Phil. in the History and Theory of Architecture from Cambridge University in England, before earning her PhD at Columbia University. Maulsby’s research focuses on architectural responses to modernization with a special emphasis on the relationships between architecture, urbanism, and politics in Italy.
Her book Fascism, Architecture and the Claiming of Modern Milan, 1923–43 (University of Toronto Press, 2014) explores the architectural and urban transformation of Milan in the interwar period. The project was funded by a number of fellowships, grants, and awards including a Whiting Fellowship and a Mellon Author Award. Her articles and reviews have been published in Future/Anterior, Journal of Modern Italian Studies, Urban History, Journal of Architectural Education, The Journal of the Society of Architectural Historians, and in City Halls and Civic Materialism: Towards a Global History of Urban Public Space. Her current book project The Legacy of Fascism in Postwar Italian Architecture has been supported by a Wolfsonian-FIU Fellowship and Franklin Research Grant.
